AP -- The Las Vegas Raiders got angry backlash for a tweet the team sent after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of murdering George Floyd. The tweet sent by the team's official account said "I CAN BREATHE 4-20-21." Floyd told officers "I can't breathe" more than 20 times before he was killed when Chauvin pressed his knee into Floyd's neck last May.

Chauvin was convicted of murder and manslaughter for causing Floyd's death. The tweet was widely condemned in replies on Twitter. Raiders owner Mark Davis says the tweet was his idea and he won't delete it but he's sorry if it offended anyone in Floyd's family.
